My husband and I REALLY enjoyed our stay here at Service Creek Lodge.
This is our 4th week of traveling from LA, Calif to Canada going through Redwoods, Oregon Coast and Washington. Even to Idaho. Service Creek was part of our way back and we want to thank Randy for his advise of going to Susanville via Crater Lake. We look forward to our way back via this route. Service Creek has been a wonderful stop! We thank everyone here for hospitality and kindness- a visit we will always remember.
We pray for safe travels to all who pass and/or stop and for ourselves.
Blessings always,
Norman & Marie-Anne
